Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Countdown

Not sure anyone feels like they are owed anything (unless its free access to all the sbds ever produced, seems like a lot of people think they are owed that because of that Jerry quote about being done with it). The fact that they have a countdown on their website seems to indicate that they are going to do something. Seems to me that if anything we owe it to the band to join their celebration for all the reasons that you mention. I am just curious how they plan to celebrate. I hope its not a tour.

I doubt they would ever call any reunion the Grateful Dead for the reasons you state.

For me, it's primarily about NOT wanting Bob to get his cause he's so snarky...(re; "done with it").

Well, okay; I am not really begrudging them anything they want to do on that front, but, when I was a punk, out there hawking their rep, to anyone and everyone, I believed with all my hear that Jerry wanted me to have them, and Bob wasn't so bad, and...and...

I done grow'd up...but I can still recall--I KNOW it's what made them different, and of course, BETTER. So, if that's no longer the case, I dunno, you know?

;)

Bob's "see ya" comment was regrettable, but as was pointed out last week, that was almost 9 years ago and perhaps its time to let it go.

I do purchase a fair share of the releases, in part, because of all the reasons you elude to. This band has been more than generous with its fan base. Way more generous than any other band and they continue to do so. As Pig Street! says, i don't think they owe us anything. I'm okay with them selling what is a fraction of their catalog, there is still so much more to listen to for free.
